Dawn Gardens are mainly for ornamental plants but I installed some vegetable beds and a fruit orchard for clients who want to see how it is done.
Raspberry ‘Fall Gold’
6 different types peaches grafted on one tree
Persimmon (Diospyros kaki ‘Hachiya’)
Dwarf Pomegranate (Punica granata ‘Compacta’)
Owari Satsuma Mandarin
Besides the Kumquat this is the only citrus that will survive at Dawn Gardens because the temperatures can get down below 25 degrees. This tangerine is delicious, easy to peel and has no seeds.
Yellow Delicious Apple
Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum)
Strawberry Guava (
The vegetable garden is made up of 7 4’x7′ garden beds made of 1/4″ steel plate welded together at the corners.
Since the beds are raised above the ground there is good drainage. Every year I add a wheelbarrow full of compost to each bed before planting.
